Klim Overland Jacket 4.5 5 57 57
Finally a good value in a well made modular I have bought almost one of every high end jacket looking for the best overall so that I can take long trips and not have to carry extra gear. This jacket comes closest so far and I love the fact it is completely gimmick free. The front top pocket holds my iPhone 6+ just perfect and has kept it dry and handy for literally thousands of miles and smiles. This gear performs and with various layers has taken me down as far as I want to ride. I like a snug fit though and if I nitpicked I would like to have the personal info pocket on the sleeve but did not want the complexity of the higher end jackets. Living in the South, should have probably bought the lighter color way too as the black does get hot when sitting in traffic in the sun , though the vents are so well done that once moving this jacket moves a ton of air and keeps you dry in the worst of downpours . Four days recently in Frogchokers were unable to overcome this jacket design. I read the factory does not honor warranty of failed issues from washing and that is unfortunate to read. I rarely wash the black one though so hopefully it won't be an issue. I got this jacket on sale and was sub 400 for sure a good value at that price point after paying over five hundred for the jeans I got for the trip *Rokkers) so the jacket was a bargain by comparison . BTW the Rockers are water proof too though they take forever to dry out on the outside. Not an issue with the Klim KISS, keep it simple stupid would be my advise to Klim as this is what you need when banging out mile after mile in the states mostly on roads and the phone pocket water proof pockets and good fit without a lot of baggy sizing is a step in the right direction for me. I use the jacket for everything but dessert riding and my full mess BMW does that job well. Keep riding thanks again to Antony and the guys at Reveille for setting the bar so high for service and helpful advice to get the gear you need when you need it. l November 18, 2015
Does what's needed -- Can't complain Long version first -- short version second. I bought the gray one. I purchased this jacket partly because of the price point and partly for the armor and Gore-Tex. I bought it to use on my trip from DC to Newfoundland this summer. It served me well from 104F down to 30F. Was I hot? Yes. But I use other products to combat that. Was I cold? Sure, but again... There are ways to fix that. Was I wet (even though it rained on me every day at some point)? NOT AT ALL!! If you're using this jacket, and you get wet, it's your own fault. I rode in some pretty stupid downpours as well as the Rain Drizzle and Fog that is so common in Newfoundland. I was never wet. I only got cold because it was cold. I start getting cold at about 50 degrees at highway speeds, I guess. I got super hot at a couple points, but I was stuck in traffic in Connecticut where it was 95 degrees. Here's the quick version: Fit -- works for me because I'm bigger in the middle than I should be. That two-way zipper is great on the road. I have reasonably long arms and torso and short legs, so the length isn't a problem. The arms would fit better is they were probably an inch shorter, but they're fine and the armor is pretty much where it should be. The cuffs wrap down tight enough, but my Held Air 'n Dry gloves don't have huge gauntlet openings so they're pretty tight. I had room for my heated vest, a thin down jacket, and a sweatshirt when needed. Protection -- D3O... Nuff said. It wasn't hot, stayed flexible enough when cold, and did not get used except as insurance. The Gore-Tex shell kept me dry and kept the wind at bay. Ventilation -- Meh. The riding position on my V-max is pretty upright, but I have a fairly tall and wide windscreen for touring (Givi Airflow puchased here). It blocks the flow of air from getting into those opened front side zippers. It's almost like having no vents at all sometimes unless I raise my elbows a lot. This is (for Klim) a price-point jacket, so I wasn't expecting bells and whistles, but even a short arm vent would have helped a lot. It would have given the rain a way in, though, so there's a trade-off there somewhere. Value -- $425ish for a Gore-Tex shell with D3O armor is worth it to me. I could spend that much on just a rain jacket at any major camping store. This jacket performed fantastically well for me. I'll probably be sticking with Klim jackets from here on out whether I use their pants or not. October 19, 2015
Utilitarian functionality at its best I bought the Overland jacket and pants set held off on writing a review until I could put it through its paces. Here are my thoughts: Use: daily commuting in the fall early spring (cold weather) seasons as well as for touring going into the mountain roads (unpredictable weather). Sizing: I am 5'11", 165 lbs, 16" neck, 31" waist, 40" chest I bought a size medium and the fit is quite good. Chest fit is perfect and I can fit a base and mid layer in underneath. Waist fit has room but can be cinched down. The neck at the fully loosened position is a little tight. I would never cinch it unless in a downpower. I can feel the jacket against my neck, but forget about it as soon as I start riding. Sleeve length (sorry, forgot my arm lenght) is about right. I could live with an extra 12-25 mm on the sleeves just for a little more coverage. But when I hit the riding position, it covers nicely. My forearms and biceps are not the largest despite my semi-athletic build. But the forearm velcro cinch works perfectly to secure armor when I'm not wearing extra layers Feedback Based on intended use: This jacket is a great windstopper and I rode it in temperatures down to about 2 degrees C with nothing more than a t-shirt on (I'm naturally warm). However, as I mentioned earlier, I can easily fit a base layer and mid layer fleece with no problems. I rode up to about 18 degrees C and the airflow was pretty good with both the intake and exhaust vents opened. I can see this jacket being able to go up to about the low 20's with little issue (low humidity). Jacket is Gore-Tex.. nothing to say here. Except not that the outer pockets are water RESISTANT and not PROOF. Function/Gripes: Easily accessible zipper grabs and plenty of storage space (3 external, 1 internal) make carry keys and wallet an easy thing to do. My zipper did get stuck once in the liner. But I think it was a fluke. If you have sensitive skin, it's a good idea to wear a full sleeve shirt or layer. The inner liner is pretty rough on the skin and could irritate some people. A little bit more soft touch materials would be good in the neck area and wrist area for comfort. The adjustable cuffs allowed me to wear gauntlets over top of the jacket (Teknic Lightning). It's not comfy or practical to wear it under the jacket in my opinion. Overall: Apart from the few gripes that I've noted above, overall I would recommend this jacket as it's exactly what I was looking for. The price tag is a bit hard to swallow for a shell jacket but I think in the long run it will be worth it. As a person who gets warm easily, I don't often need to layer up. With this jacket I have the option to when it gets too chilly. September 29, 2015
Could be better... I have been riding in the KLIM for over a year now. All kinds of weather. The KLIM is surely stylish and waterproof. But If I were KLIM I would make some product improvements to make it worth the high dollar cost they charge for it. Would not buy it again without trying others first. 1. Fix the fly zipper so it doesn't get snagged 70% of the time going up and down. 2. Provide padding that stays in place to protect the elbows and knees. What, no shoulder or hip pads? How much does plastic and rubber cost and how much did I pay for this? Gees! 3. Never had a fall but the padding does not seem like it would be that protective unless you are in a slide. 4. Ventilate, ventilate, ventilate...how hard is that? 5. The pants are low in the back and makes them feel baggy for me. Don't have a problem with my Levis. 6. Pockets are minimal and just seem awkwardly accessible plus there aren't but two on the pants and two on jacket. Enough for a little change and key, phone... 7. Could we have a little more reflectivity? It is a good thing to be seen. September 4, 2015
very nice jacket no storage Love the looks of this jacket. Fit is perfect. Got a large. I'm 6'3" 200lbs and wear a 44 long sport coat. 16 x 35 shirt. Comfortable and waterproof. BUT there isn't really any usable pockets. There's 2 cellphone sized pockets in the chest area (one on each side) and just 2 zippered ones for your hands in the front. Not any room really to carry anything in like sunglasses or maps... July 12, 2015
Comfortable, Good Fit, Great Features I bought this jacket to replace my aging Olympia AST. My priorities are protection and all weather comfort. I ride in all weather and temperatures, and with the other gear that I have I really didn't want another jacket with a liner - in colder weather I'll just layer, or use a heated liner. Size I had the luxury of being able to visit Revzilla in Philly to try on the Klim. I'm 5'10" and around 215, with chest (barely) still larger than my belly, with average length arms. I usually wear an XL, which is what I tried on. It felt like it was made for me the first time I tried it on. The fit over a long sleeve shirt was great, with just the sleeves feeling a little long. I also tried it on with my heated liner (a Tourmaster Synergy) - it was obviously snugger, but still did not feel constricted. Comfort So far (~1000 miles) it's been comfortable for my daily commute, and up to 3-4 hour rides. No complaints. Venting / warm weather OK ventilation, but definitely not as good as my Olympia. It does flow a decent amount of air at speed on my Versys. The interior lining in the arms feels more comfortable when you get sweaty, though. Waterproofing Based on a single 2 hour ride at highway speeds on a VERY wet day, the waterproofing is great! No sign of any water infiltration, and the shell does not seem to absorb much water. The only wet area was the neck lining, from the water running down my helmet. I'm not sure if there's anything that can be done about that. Protection I will hopefully not be reviewing this aspect. The D30 armor doesn't feel like much, but it does stiffen up as advertised when it's briskly smacked. July 12, 2015
Not good enough for $400 This jacket looks awesome and the fit seems great at first. However, there is no material behind the zipper and when fully zipped up it rubs on the rider's neck. This sounds like a small thing but take a piece of metal and rub it on your neck for thirty minutes or two hours. I find that this jacket stays in the garage because it causes me pain and I don't want to use it. To make matters worse, I bought it from a local dealer (I know that was my mistake for not buying from Revzilla!) and can't bring it back because I've had it too long. The Klim representative said they won't modify it and sew in a piece of material because it compromises the integrity of the jacket. So I'm stuck with a $400+ dollar jacket that causes me pain to wear because they didn't/won't sew in a piece of material. I won't be recommending or purchasing their products in the future. Should have bought through Revzilla. June 12, 2015
Solid Jacket My New Overland jacket is awesome. More comfortable than anticipated. Very stylish too. I haven't been caught out in the rain yet so I can't speak to the waterproof aspect. May 18, 2015

ROBERT K: price &protection rain &armour Apr 9, 2015
Alan K: I wanted riding gear than can actually hold up in the rain and other elements. My joerocket and revit rain suits, gloves, etc; would eventually leak after 20 minutes of rain (but mostly in the seams). I wanted something with high visibility, good armor/protection, at least a few pockets (Klim makes other ADV jackets for a lot more because of the extra pockets, features, etc that I don't need), and for water proofness! Mar 29, 2015
H O: Like most, don't like the idea of a waterproof liner under a non-waterproof jacket nor having to carry a rain jacket that doesn't breathe. Plus, Goretex and Cordura is a good combination. Works well up to 90's as long as moving. Fellow riders are noticing and purchasing Klim. Commissions???? Sep 16, 2014
Tom K: Has armor integrated. Gore tex shell. Ventilation on the back that will not be obstructed by a backpack. Simple. Jul 8, 2014
Larry S: Wanted a waterproof, windproof jacket to wear most of the riding season but yet able to open up the vents for 80's degree temps, this item fits that bill. Jun 20, 2014
Stuart M: Had a small off yesterday (bloody roadworks) and shredded the previous jacket. This looks like it provides good climate control for Sydney weather, and touring around. Jun 17, 2014
Don M: I want true waterproof, I want decent levels of crash protection and I want comfort. I don't want heavy and limiting of my movement, I ride to feel free. This jacket looks well made and designed (waist cinching aside). I chose this jacket to meet my criteria as well for the reviews I have seen of Klim equipment. I also chose it because Klim have kept working on their design (neck comfort for example) which shows a company that does care about the quality of their products. Also a sensible price! Jun 4, 2014
Adam S: Brand reputation, waterproof, not obviously motogear, ability to do my own layering, design and materials. Also, because I'm not sure whether I'll choose the Overland or the Rukka AirRider so I'm taking advantage of RevZilla's consumer friendly policies. Thanks for that. Jun 3, 2014

JOSE L asked: Need help making choices. Early next year I have a 10-day adventure trip planned in Ecuador which includes both hot/humid and cold/rain/snow. I was decided on the Overland jacket and pants but then I started to compare it to the Badlands Pro jacket and pants but at almost double the price of the Overland, I was wondering if it was really worth the premium price difference? I see that the Badlands is a 3 -ply Gortex rather than the 2-ply of the Overland. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Jul 21, 2014

Robert M: I purchased the overland jacket as a commuter jacket and I'm very pleased by the choice. I live in Kansas where the temperature ranges from very hot and humid to freezing cold. I normally don't use the included zip in liners for most jackets as I prefer to use more of a layering method depending on the weather and my destination. The Overland makes layering easy with plenty of room for a fleece or other base layers. I also find the venting of the jacket to be pretty good considering the vents are not designed to direct air into the jacket but seem to be more for letting hot air out. I've ridden with it in 100 degree weather and it is better than other jackets I've had but it is still a waterproof jacket and will get hotter than mesh. I've ridden through some awesome Kansas style thunderstorms and the jacket kept me completely dry when other jackets I've had would have failed.
Overall, I really don't think I would choose anything else. For the price I really do think this is probably the most versatile jacket available. Now that I have the Overland I feel the Badlands really would be overkill for my needs and the way I ride.

Scott M: Jose,

I too looked at all the models in the Klim catalog. For me I mainly commute with some longer rides on the weekends. A waterproof shell was my main criteria in looking for a jacket. Naturally I gravitate towards the higher end but couldn't justify the added expense. I did not need 50 pockets, belts, adjustments, or any extra frills. The 3 ply vs. 2 ply construction was my only hang up. I chose the Overland because it fit my needs, wasn't overly complicated or busy. The armor goes unnoticed and doesn't inhibit movement. I think if I were going on an expedition, I would probably choose the Traverse line. Still durable without any extra bells and whistles. I like the idea of layering for the climate, just the shell when warm, layered up when cold. With the Overland, I am very pleased with the quality. I'm 6', 300 lbs. and chose a 3xl. The fit/cut is spot on except for the arms are a little tight, but I have pretty big forearms. Hope this helps, good luck!

Fred Z: While I think this is a great jacket for the price, I'm not sure it will meet your needs. With the lack of ventilation and lack of a warm liner, it wouldn't do well in extreme conditions - cold or hot.

My biggest problem with this jacket is that it only has 2 vent zips on the front, and 2 on the back. While they are large vents, there are jackets with more ventilation that would work better for hot weather.

The jacket also has a minimal amount of pockets and adjustment straps which hurts the utility. I would look at some of the higher end Klim jackets or some other brands that would have a greater amount of versatility for the same price point.

Robert P: Jose,

Sounds like a great trip. Since I have not used a Badlands Pro kit I can't make a comparison. The only thing I'll offer is that the Overland works well to keep me pretty dry in 1-2 hours of rainy wet weather. In heavy or pouring rain I usually put on a yellow rain suit for visibility.

Keep in mind that it's not really a summer jacket. The 4 vents are Ok but you can get pretty warm and sweaty in sustained hot/humid conditions. If I was wearing this jacket/pants in a sun-baked area or in continually hot conditions I might go with the lighter color. Have fun!

Carl T: The overland is a good jacket but it just the shell. You have to add or subtract layers. I use it with heated gear in cold weather and find it to be great. The badlands comes with everything but the overland when used with the right layers can be very effective. So my answer would be the badlands ic worth the price if you really want it but the overland is a great alternative to save money . Just watch the sizing they seem a little smaller then I'm used to but they may have designed intentionally that way for the waterproofing.(sleeves have tight opening, shoulders were normal) Jul 22, 2014

Mark B: I was riding in the rain over mountain passes two days ago. Didn't get wet in my jacket. A bit cool but I could have put a down liner in without a prob. In the heat you will be hot and sweaty. I found I like to zip the bottom zipper up to open the air flow. It's a double zipper. I also took out the back pad. It's a good jacket. Jul 22, 2014

Matthew H: Jose, I just wore the Klim Overland pants and jacket on an 8 day riding trip in Northern Vietnam this past February. We had hot days and very cold days plus a day of heavy rain.

Scott L: Hi Buyer.

The included armour is removable, and the jacket is durable and nicely detailed. On the negative, the back armour insert is a bit lean. Still, this piece is well worth the price.

A shopper asked: Hi,

Is this an appropriate jacket for summer commuting? Do the vents provide adequate cooling for temps in the mid 80s?

I like the klim lineup but I want to be sure something like the Overland will be comfortable for summer riding.

Scott M: I believe its the best jacket in the Klim lineup for commuting. For me it flows plenty of air with just a tee shirt on underneath. Most of my riding is a 30 mile commute to work each way. I like the "shell" concept in that the jacket itself is the true waterproof gore-tex outer layer. Then you just add layers depending on the season. The more "adventure" oriented jackets just seem to have too many bells and whistles that I don't need. I think all those pockets would inhibit cooling. Hope this helps, good luck! May 5, 2015

Robert P: Re heat and the Klim Overland ... depends on where you live. I have a rev-it mesh for summer in East Tennessee. We get 4 real seasons. Summer temps above 85 and pretty high humidity are normal. Love the Overland but it was 75 today, and perfect weather, and I wore the mesh. May 4, 2015

John R asked: looking for a jacket to replace my tourmaster. any type of winter liner included with the jacket .? Sep 23, 2013

Larry S: The Klim Overland jacket is without any additional liners, other than the mesh liner which is built in and not for warmth or rain.

With that stated, I was previously using a Tourmaster Transition 2 jacket for about 5 years. This Klim Overland jacket is much more of an outer wear jacket by a long shot. It is both warmer and cooler than the Transition 2 jacket without the liner.

For a warmth liner, I used in both jackets the Tourmaster Synergy electric liner. With the liner turned on behind a K1200RS (with GT wind protection) the Klim jacket is good for another 10-20 degrees than the Tourmaster was per heat settings. The Tourmaster just lets too much air in through the fabric, but yet wasn’t that much better if at all in hot temperatures with all vents open then the Overland is. True when using a separate liner such as an electric liner, they are not zipped or attached and will be a separate jacket to remove. This is both a plus and minus, myself, I prefer this so it is easier to change with the day’s riding temperature changes.

Rain, hands down the Klim wins, no contest.

The Overland does not have the same pocket features of the Transition, but again if that is wanted, step up to the Klim Latitude or Badlands for more even $$.

edward s: No winter liner. It really is just an expensive shell. To be completely honest, I would not purchase this jacket, nor any other klim product again. I used the jacket for a cross-country summer trip. The jacket was fine for the trip, however, once I returned home and washed the jacket as instructed by klim dealers and the care instructions, the mesh holding the armor tore out. And, contrary to the exceptional reviews about product warranty, I found the company to be just the opposite. They expected me to pay for the repairs. I would go with Revit. You won't find a warmer winter jacket, they have removable layers, and are waterproof. Sorry, if you were sold on the klim, and this is simply my experience. Ride safe. Sep 23, 2013

Scott M: Hey John,

There is no liner with the Overland. It is just a shell that is meant to wear over layers. I like that feature because in the summer it is fine by itself, then as the seasons change you can add layers as needed. I commute in the Northeast, so I see all types of weather. I like the fact that the Gore-tex is waterproof on the outside. Other brands of jackets say they're waterproof, or have a waterproof membrane but after a couple seasons they leak through. Very pleased with the quality of Klim gear. Highly recommended!!

Briceson W: No winter lining. Rode in low 50 degree weather last night with all the vents closed and just a shirt sleeve underneath and was comfortable. If all the vents are closed it does a good job of keeping the wind off you Sep 23, 2013

A shopper asked: I am 6'2" 200 with a 44 chest but 35" sleeve. Wanted to order the Overland jacket but sleeve length says calls for 2XL but chest calls for L. What now? Sep 27, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Gustavo D: I am 5´8 207 46 and wear the L just fine. with you being 6¨2 i would recommend going for the XL. the jacket is perfect for everyday use but in hot weather the lack of arm ventilation can be a factor if the sleeves ride to tight to your arms. Oct 1, 2015

Carl T: Jacket runs small a large fit me tight almost perfect and I'm 5 8 175 lbs with a thick build bi shoulders and chest so go with the 2xl you need extra room anyway because it's a shell and in cool weather you'll need another layer Oct 1, 2015

Bill P: I'm 6' 1", 165 lbs. I went with a large to get the sleeve length and shoulder width. The jacket is pretty baggy but I'd rather have long enough sleeves. (At least I have lots of space for layering.) Oct 1, 2015

John L: I am 5'11". 180 lb and medium build. For me the large is a bit too big and the med is a bit too small so I went with the large so I can layer under the jacket when its cooler which is mainly when I'll use it. Mar 25, 2014

pat b asked: What's the lining in the arms like - is it also mesh? I've had an Olympia AST for several years - one of the things that bugs me when wearing just the shell in the summer is the feeling of the lining of the arms. (Yes, it's a heavy shell & I expect to sweat when not moving...just would like something a bit more comfortable against the skin when the inevitable perspiration happens.) Jun 17, 2015

Carl T: The jacket has the mesh running 3/4 of the way down the sleeves.(It finishes at the sleeve with smooth nylon) The mesh is pretty soft as I am wearing the jacket today with short sleeved shirt and had to look at it to answer the question. I can't tell you how it feels though during a hot day after riding all day because I haven't worn this particular jacket during those times Jun 18, 2015

The Overland falls into the Klim food chain as a more light-weight version of something like the Latitude. In recent years, we've seen the Latitude, we've seen the Badlands Pro, the Overland is going to be full-scale Gore-tex. It's a two-layer construction. And remember, it's an outer shell. The Gore-tex liner is not removable; waterproof, breathable, guaranteed for life. You're investing in Gore-tex because it keeps you shielded from Mother Nature, but also allows you to breathe. Remember, I did mention tactical outer shells, which is what Klim does; they let you choose whether it's a thermal liner, or how you want to beef up your base and mid-layers underneath. But really, they're meant to be 4-season pieces of apparel.

The Overland also takes a lot of its inspiration from something like the Traverse, which is an off-road enduro piece that a lot of people were using on the street. The Overland is going to come with your D3O armour; it comes with everything you need right off the rack, and rock-solid. And, watch our detailed breakdown video of the Overland pants by Peter Waring to my left as well. We don't want to break them down. We did that in a separate video. Now keep in mind too, as you're seeing this first glance, click here, subscribe to RevZilla TV, and leave us your comments; love to hear your questions as well.

Let's dive right in on sizing. So, Peter, 6', 195, 42" chest; he has actually a little bit more muscular legs as well on this outfit. You see the way that he's filling it out, but he is wearing a size large. It's the same size that Peter wears in the Traverse. We find the fit is not that much different. One of the things we did notice, and I'm going to nitpick it a little bit, is if Peter raises his arms, it's a little bit boxy down here under the arms. They've changed the vent configuration. I'm going to show that in a second. But, if you can see how it hangs; love to see some maybe cinching on this jacket. I'm not sure how we could slightly pull that off. It's feedback back up the flagpole to clients. But also keep in mind, we ship for free and exchange for free; no restocks when you need to send it back. So, don't fret if the only place you can find it is with us, online and you want to take that chance on sizing.

Now, reeling that back for a second, let's talk a little bit more highly about this outfit. It's really 4-seasons, which means you're waterproof where you beef up the thermal layers underneath for the winter, but in the summer, you have plenty of ventilation and it's going to be able to go through it and keep you cool. In spring and fall, motorcycling is typically an easier time of the year for most people depending on your temper or your tolerance for waterproofing. So, the key things here, big changes over the Traverse; down the arm, you're going to see there are big vertical vents now that are water resistant zippers that tie in with the Gore-tex integrated waterproof laminate here. But, there's your intakes on both sides.

On the Traverse, they used to be under the arms. They're a little harder, a little bit more out of the way. Now, you have a little bit more access to them. Basic hand-warmer pockets on the front. And, turn around; I'm going to show them the back really quickly here. This is the big feature here for summertime riding -- big scoops on the back, big exhausts that are going to allow that free-flowing air to come out. Turn back around to the front for me, Peter; musical chairs here. Now looking at the shell itself, it's going to be 840D Cordura in impact areas. You can see it in this darker grey. Remember there's a black version of this outfit as well. So, dark grey up here around the shoulders, along the arms, end of the sleeve, areas that are going to be more prone to abrasion. You saw it on the back of the jacket. And, it's an abrasion resistant textile that's not Cordura that you are going to see. It's a little softer. It's not quite crunchy. It has a nice feel to it in the main construction.

Other thing I want to call out is we talked about armour, D3O armour included. And if you do the math and you bought a Traverse, which is less street-centric and a much different style, and added the D3O to it later, it would actually be more expensive to do that. In the Overland, you're getting it all in one shot. So D3O, EVO armour, XT, extended temperature; it's molecular armour. On impact, it disperses the energy. You can see it's that orange armour, it's very flexible, it's very comfortable. But, the XT rating means that even when you go really deep into the temperature range, it's still going to be comfortable against your body, it's still going to do its job in the case of impact.

Shoulders and then, elbows, you're also getting a CE Level 1 back protector that you could upgrade, but it comes stock here in the back which is a nice feature. Now, looking up to the collar, some of the creature comforts and nuances; nice big fleece-lined collar here. Peter rocks a Traverse Jacket. He was mentioning to us that it works for him, it's a stand-up collar. It's really a multi-season touring style outfit. Big YKK zippers, Vislon pulls. Notice it was a two-way zipper. So if you're on an upright bike, you can give yourself a little room to flare it at the bottom. And also, if we look at the reflective scheme, this is something we're seeing come down the pipe from Klim. As they're looking at reflective, they're saying they want to make sure that the humanoid form can be recognized by somebody that's just seeing headlights hit a dark rider at night.

So, shoulders, elbows, forearms, down toward the sleeve, you're going to see it as you work your way down the pants, and see how that would light up, and be bright, and make sure that somebody has a better chance of knowing you're a person on a bike, and they can stop accordingly. Velcro going all the way down with a snap at the collar. Basic on the inside; remember, it's a technical shell. You're going to add your own layers to it. So, mesh lining, iPod pocket, all YKK zippers throughout; some cinching here on the bottom, but again, it's not going to do anything around those kidney areas. You even have loops to be able sneak your iPod or headphone wires all the way up.

Now, turn backwards for me one more time, Peter. I'll walk a little bit more in depth through the back. Pull-cinching here up along the back of the neck for the collar; we talked about that fleece lining, its wicking. Reflectivity, you see that with these big pulls, and then the drop seat that comes all the way down. Look at this. This cut is much more for an upright or three-quarter riding position. I'm not going to recommend it for the tuck at all.
